We have plans! Stay tuned.

The XR conference room provides a physical space for using the XR/VR HoloLens technology. It will be used to develop active and experiential learning workshops and activities for students, faculty, and staff. Since HoloLens fully integrate with Microsoft Teams, there may be options for users to visit the conference room for hybrid meetings across campus. 

  • Library Open House:  Wednesday, January 17th
  • Pop-Up Events, Spring 2023
  • Exploring free HoloLens Apps
